This time around, the relationship between the two sides was a little more strained.
Hey, don't get me wrong. Fightins' fans should have been booing the San Francisco Giants pitcher during Saturday night's NLCS Game 1 and I applaud a couple of their methods. Astute fans chanted "Tim-mmy, Tim-mmy" when Linececum showed displeasure with umpire Derryl Cousin's strike zone. They also wolf whistled him like they would an attractive girl because of his long hair.
I was thinking 'I must have a really nice butt,'" Linececum laughed later.
Now that's funny stuff. The "Hippy Trash" and "Fix Your Teeth" signs though? Eh, that's getting a little too personal for my tastes, though Lincecum got personal right back, besting Roy Halladay(notes) in their time on the mound and getting the win in the Giants' 4-3 victory.
